I understand this defense attorney is just doing his job, but to assume dressing like a Ninja is commonplace in Asia is scraping the barrel of stupidity. I would also ask the attorney just what hobby involves hatchets, hand cuffs, body bags and manuals on how to hunt humans?
This is one sick dude who needs to be away from the human race. Forever.

Americanized.... well, yeah, I do agree with that since Page was greatly influenced by John Lee Hooker and many of the Mississippi Delta Blue's musicians. Coda seemed a bit disappointing, but wow, those other albums were astonishing, even to this day!

You`re very much correct, bass4funk...
I saw the B`z last tour in the US several years ago, playing a club that held 1,100, but only around 600 attended. It was awesome to see them up-close with just amps, drums and guitars and no excessive stage show, but truthfully, 95% of the audience was Japanese (the 5% were guys with Japanese girlfriends). I imagine this tour will be the same situation.
Spanish? Well, apart from Richie Valens, Ricky Martin and Los Lobos, I do tend to agree, Jose.

How many of us make a living doing what we love? Some, sure, but would you do it for free, or a below meager salary? Probably not. So why should we expect pro athletes to do what they love for little money? This is their job, their income, and they deserve to make a salary comparable to others in the short career of being a pro athlete.

In my family we have four HD's and I can atest Harley is a culture, not just a motorcycle. But foremost they are a company, and the idea of giving freebies back to anyone who lost a motorcycle is absurd, even in such a historical disaster. HD has made a nice offer, one they didn't have to do. No soul? Hardly.
And why the slam, Amidalism? Wasn't it a Westerner who originally found the motorcycle and located the owner, rather than playing 'finders keepers?' Seems 'Westerners' are doing a lot to help preserve this lonely Softail.

Yes, I agree congrats to a great band... but there were several other great artists who were inducted as well. Why post an article focusing on just one?

If the ship had been purposely abandoned, it would be the owners responsibility... but when the cause is a natural disaster there are loosely written laws that free the owner of any salvage obligation. It's floating, but is a rotted rust bucket that will most likely become target practice for the Navy before it reaches land.

Wouldn`t putting a satellite precisely into orbit mean pretty much shooting it straight up? Shooting in the direction of something is called a missile. And for a country who has no contact with the outside world, they need a satellite for....? Precisely.

Sigh... I try to support Japanese police, but this is absolutely unexcusable. You never, ever, cuff someone in the front, unless using waist chains (watch the beginning to No Country For Old Men...) A bad pat down, improper cuffing, and this is the result. Lucky for the officers that the guy took his own life, not more.
It`s not fishy, just bad police work.

To fill in some blanks here, it was added in US papers that the husband (who was 58) died of lung cancer and the assailants were most likely trying to get his stash of prescription pain meds. The wife (age 18...yup, 18) did the right thing by calling 911 and defending herself and child. People have the legal recourse to protect themselves...no matter where they live. Well done, young lady!

Shoulda, coulda, woulda...there is no crystal ball in law enforcement, sure wish there was. This is not Minority Report where Tom Cruise can arrest someone before a crime occurs. I am sure the police acted within their limiting legal statutes with the 23 yr old, yet no one could have seen the savage ending that occured with the other victims. Hideous crime, but all blame goes toward the killer. Not who shoulda...

I recommend studying the origins and preachings of Mormonism before judging them by their seemingly clean living behavior. It is a cult, and the secret nature of their membership, along with bigotry and racism is well noted within Joseph Smith`s flock...and his writings.
That aside, I disagree with a persons religion being the formost consideration for political office. But looking at the current lot of candidates. Romney is better qualified (not best), and we certainly do not need another Texas governor as president. I would rather vote for the unhealthy dirty drunk chewin chocolate.
